Ilana Goor, internationally renowned artist, designer and scuptor has restored a 1742 Jewish hostel into a space odyssy: a Museum.
The museum serves today as the artist’s home, and you are invited to explore the chambers she has set before you. Thanks to reconstruction efforts initiated by Ilana Goor the museum offers arches, internal vaulting rooms, and ancient stones all of which expose the Jewish hostel which was built in the 18th century.
Gracing the rooms are Ilana Goor’s life works: sculptures, jewerly and furniture created from wood, glass, bronze and iron; collection of etchings, paintings, casting and carvings she has gathered from around the globe.
Although the objects on display were carefully chosen, the mantra of “please touch” is floating in the air. Ilana Goor feels she found a treasure and wants to share it with everyone. Each visitor can feel at home, spend a whole afternoon, relaxing and browsing through art books in the “muse room”; having a chat with other visitors in the guest room or playing with the Bassets on the porch.
On the porch facing the sea, overlooking the four thousand year old Jaffa port you can enjoy a drink or snack offered in the museum café.
At the museum shop on the lower level you will find a variety of jewelry, cutlery, tableware, lighting and furniture designed by Ilana Goor.
Here you can make your visit a memorable one.
